THE BOOKSHOP (2018)
Starring Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Honor Kneafsey, Hunter Tremayne, James Lance, Frances Barber, Reg Wilson, Michael Fitzgerald and Nigel O'Neill. Directed by Isabel Coixet.

Set in 1959, Florence Green, a free spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop – the first such shop in the sleepy seaside town of Hardborough, England. Fighting damp, cold and considerable local apathy she struggles to establish herself but soon her fortunes change for the better. By exposing the narrow minded local townsfolk to the best literature of the day including Nabokov’s scandalising 'Lolita' and Ray Bradbury’s 'Fahrenheit 451', she opens their eyes thereby causing a cultural awakening in a town which has not changed for centuries.

Her activities bring her a kindred spirit and ally in the figure of Mr Brundish who is himself sick of the town’s stale atmosphere. But this mini social revolution soon brings her fierce enemies: she invites the hostility of the town’s less prosperous shopkeepers and also crosses Mrs Gamart, Hardborough’s vengeful, embittered alpha female who is herself a wannabe doyenne of the local arts scene. When Florence refuses to bend to Gamart’s will, they begin a struggle not just for the bookshop but for the very heart and soul of the town.

REVIEWS The Bookshop - Faded and musty

As their friends arrive, some of whom have their own dramatic news to share, the soirée gradually unravels. An announcement by Bill provokes a series of revelations that rapidly escalate into all-out confrontation. As people’s illusions about themselves and each other go up in smoke, along with the canapés,'The Party' becomes a night that began with champagne but ends with blood on the floor.
